Sergio Perez will drive Ferrari’s 2009 F1 car in a test in September.

Perez will best tested alongside fellow Ferrari Development Academy member Jules Bianchi, the team confirmed.

Bianchi is driving his second season in GP2. He scored his first win in the category last weekend, and is now seventh in the drivers’ championship.

He has previously driven for Ferrari in the young drivers’ tests.

FDA director Luca Baldisseri said: “We will be back on track in September, at Mugello or Fiorano.

“It will be a very interesting test, because we will be putting Jules Bianchi and Sergio Perez up against one another.

“I think they will both be very motivated and for us it will be the perfect opportunity to assess both drivers.”

  1. Good luck perez

  2. I thought Kobayashi will be the man for Ferrari now seems like they are eyeing for Perez? He is good & talented just like Kobayashi & won’t be a bad sweep for Massa in 2012 or 2013.

    1. If he shows consistently strong qualifying pace(which is his weak point I think) and no trouble in race. Aggressive driving style is good and I like it but no need to break front wing.

  3. i don’t think perez is a really good driver. every time he scores is because he makes 1-2 pits stops less than everybody else. i would like to see him doing the same # of pits stops as the other drivers.

  4. I have a slight feeling that Kamui may want to move up with a leading team next year. I mean Kamui is one hell of a driver and with the right car, I think we may see the first Japanese race winner so I think Sauber will need to step up their game to keep Kamui. If they can’t, I would love to see Jules and Sergio in at Sauber next year.
